SAS scores high marks from Manufacturing Business Technology magazine

'Global 100' List Spotlights SAS as No. 1 Business Performance Vendor

CARY, N.C., Aug. 2, 2006--Manufacturing Business Technology (MBT) named SAS, the leader in business intelligence, to "The Global 100" list which appears in the magazine's July 2006 issue. In the "Business Performance" category, a subset of the Global 100 list, SAS ranked No. 1, outpacing competitors like Business Objects, Cognos and Hyperion. SAS ranked No. 26 in The Global 100 list overall. The Global 100 lists the leading IT and enterprise providers for manufacturing and supply chain based on total vendor revenues in calendar year 2005 and additional research.

"Manufacturing Business Technology is proud that SAS participated in our 2006 Global 100 listings," said Kevin Parker, MBT Editorial Director. "As one of the few privately held companies on the list, SAS has clearly demonstrated its ability to compete with even the largest vendors. It also deserves recognition as one of the first software companies to establish the value of business intelligence systems for manufacturers and other type companies."

Grant Felsing, Decision Support Manager with Briggs & Stratton, a longtime SAS manufacturing customer, said, "This most recent honor for SAS underscores what we've known for years: SAS delivers on its promise. With SAS, I'm able to do anything my company needs very quickly and inexpensively. SAS puts me in the position to draw on a very high level of expertise, and the quality of the software is an enormous benefit."

Fred Haubold, General Manager of SAS' Manufacturing and Services Business Unit, added, "We are honored to be recognized by MBT in the Global 100 listing. We're especially pleased and proud to have been acknowledged as No. 1 in the area of business performance. Our customers appreciate the fact that SAS brings them all they need for business performance including data integration, reporting and analytics all on a single award-winning business intelligence platform. Our industry-specific offerings are strengthened by our extensive domain expertise. I look forward to seeing SAS claim more top rankings in the future."
